The Colossal Spider Web of Allaire Alumni

Allaire Corporation was one of the anchor tech companies in the Boston tech scene in the mid to late 90's and the creator of ColdFusion, a rapid web application development platform, that was widely used during the early days of the web.

The company was founded by the brother-team of JJ and Jeremy Allaire originally in Minnesota but soon relocated to the Boston area. In 1999, Allaire went public and was later acquired by Macromedia in 2001, who was subsequently acquired by Adobe in 2005.

Many of the Allaire’s alumni have gone on to make an impact in the Boston tech scene. They have either founded their own companies or have obtained leadership roles in another company. We’ve compiled a slideshow of various employees from Allaire and shared with our readers what they have been up to.
